A fantastic offer for our Bordeaux fans and at a great price to boot! With neighbors like Tertre-Rotebouef, Chateau Lassegue has the perfect location to produce world-class wine. Add some serious old vines (up to 70 years) which produce small, concentrated bunches of fruit, under the famed Limestone soils of St-Emilion and you have everything needed for greatness. And boy does it deliver, The Wine Advocate adds “Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with expressive black forest cake, preserved plums and blackberry pie notes with an undercurrent of mocha, grilled meats, sandalwood and cigar box plus a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, rich and densely packed with opulent layers of spiced black fruit preserves and chocolate box notions, it has wonderfully plush yet firm tannins and a lovely suggestion of background acid, finishing long and fragrant”. This is a beautifully drinking, wonderfully complex Bordeaux wine that is an absolute steal at $45! A six pack of this wine, at a minimum, is a must buy for your drinking pleasure at a price that few wines can compete against. Highly recommended.
